 TOWN OF IXONIA (AP) -- Authorities are trying to identify a body that a passing motorist found in a Jefferson County cornfield.
  
The driver reported noticing something out of the ordinary around midday Saturday a short distance off the road in the Town of Ixonia. The Jefferson County Sheriff's Office says it turned out to be a woman's body. The department did not release any other description of the body.
  
The county coroner requested an autopsy, and the sheriff's department asked other law enforcement for any leads or information on missing people that might help identify the body.
  
Milwaukee police spokesman Lt. Mark Stanmeyer says his department is awaiting the autopsy results and identification of the body to see if the death is connected with any of its investigations.
